The story of that mournful brow;
It haunts me as it haunted then,
A flash from fire hell-bound men.

That no creature far or nigh,
Where the lord of evil reigneth
In deep hell or haunted sky,
Shall for ever
Part of love the mystic tie.

And so we drink till horrors come, lest, sober, we go mad—

From my cradle to my coffin is that vision doomed to be
A scare of Hell and darkness--a thing of terror unto me!
